Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 9, 2012 5A A large rock is placed by Tim Mannies, of Wilburn Construction, and Kenny Risley, of Joy Engineering, with help from Sherry Curnow and Sonia Robinson, of Gray's. Many local businesses contributed time, equipment and materials to the Garden Triangle project. Soroptimist International of Quincy members and their families work on the Garden Triangle. In addition to donations, the $500 president's fund made the project possible. Members of the Feather River College rodeo team, led by coach Jesse Segura, ply shovels to make room for new donated river rock. Hate to Paint?

Lately, it was looking a little haggard and overgrown, so the group's president, Kris Miravalle, chose to allocate her $500 president's project funds to improve the triangle. "It was the easiest project I ever tried to put together," said Miravalle. "Everyone I spoke to jumped on board and even enlisted the help of others. "It started with a call tO Gray's to get some help knowing what to leave and what to get rid of, and to help with the design. They helped with the actual cleanup day, where we took out four loads of debris. "After that, a call to Kenny Risley, at Joy Engineering, got us the boulders donated from Joy Engineering and SPI. He made a call to Cindy Robinson at Riverside Rock and got the rock donated. She contacted Tom Vaglivielo at Sierra Concrete to get the dump truck donated to haul the rock, and Kenny also contacted Tim Mannies at Wilburn to get the backhoe lined up to place the boulders." The triangle needed to be dug up to gain space for the river rock, so a call to Jesse Segura, Feather River College rodeo coach, had some of his team out to the project within the week. Ed Cammack at Plumas Motor Supply was happy to lend his parking lot as a staging area. Fred Chapin with Caltrans helped with his expertise and planning. Everyone came together April 29 to do the rock Work and the results were "amaz- ing," said Miravalle. All the time and equipment was donated, so the $500 will be spent on new plantings and upgraded drip system. Gray's is also donating some plants, so Miravalle says to look for more to come in the near future. "This truly is a great com- munity of very generous and giving people, dedicated to making Quincy a great place to live," said Miravalle. "This was a very fun and fulfilling project, so far. We aren't done yet!" Before work begins, the Garden Triangle at the end of Lawrence Street looks a little neglected. A Soroptimist-led effort resulted in four loads of debris being hauled away.
